Nice friendly people. Lots of shops and restaurants close by. Room without air conditioning was hot but to be expected. Great, cheap food in Sea Joy hotel next door and Lords restaurant. Not sure what food is like here as was very quiet. 1 hour 15 mins in tuk tuk to Colombo train station. Good first stop :)

We arranged out stay in Sri Lanka with a very kind help of Ocen View staff. We planned our trip in advance and everything was just the way we agree on. Even more, we were very pleasantly surprised with the way they mannaged some situations that occurred during our tour and sorted them out smoothly without any inconveniences. They offered... More

Clean, comfortable and affordable rooms. Bathrooms are a good size and have powerful showers with hot water! Staff are very friendly and the owner in particular speaks very good English and is quick to help you with anything you need.

I was accomodated in Ocean View Guest House in Negombo. I have to say, that both accomodation and services were on very high level. I am appreciating a professionality of the staff and their abaility and readiness to help. Thank you.

I took this hotel because of a very good reviews in Rough Guide - Sri Lanka and it was a huge mistake! Services and rooms are absolutely average, 40USD for a room with fan, 50USD with AC, 4USD for breakfast out of season. The hotel is 200 meters far from beach, nearby a noisy communication. Once you cross the street... More

nothing really exciting but cheap place in center Negombo, practical for the airport on your first or last night, but better to leave asap 'cause Negombo is not a place to stay, so it's better if you're on a budget trip, better to spend more for a better place anywhere else in Sri Lanka!
